MathML is not part of the ePUB specs afak, so it will not work. I am afraid that you have to reside to images or text with sub- and superscripts if it is possible.

Again, MathML is not supported in ePUB at the moment. However, you can use a trick to include it. If you are lucky, it will render on your device. I would not get your hopes up, I think most readers will not support it. You could be lucky though.

I entered a search in google and the first hit was from Liza Daly describing the process. Link is here. For your information, the search I fed into Google was 'mathml epub'.

Yes the epub reader didn't support MathML. I'm getting this information from below mentioned site

Sure, you can use it, you can use whatever you want in an ePUB. But if it's not in the specification, there are slim chances any reading software will support it. Even some things in the specification are largely unsupported by reading software.

MathML, as Toxaris says, is not in the specification, so if any reader supports it, it will probably be just a lucky side effect of using some rendering library. I believe, however, that it will be included in the ePUB 3 specification, so there might be hope for the future, but the ePUB 3 specification is not finished, not officially released, and there are no ePUB 3 readers yet.

If it is possible can you explain the procedure to implement the MathML into EPUB

I'm sorry. I am NOT a MathML user. I would suggest to write to the author of Writer2latex, Henrik Just. I think that if somebody can answer your question, he'll probably be the one:

Writer2xhtml

Writer2xhtml converts documents into XHTML 1.0, XHTML 1.1 or XHTML 1.1+MathML 2.0 with CSS2. This provides standards-compliant XHTML and brings your math to the web.

New: In addition, Writer2xhtml converts documents into EPUB format for reading on a variety of devices.


Keep us informed if you find there your solution.

Epub 3 will support MathML but Epub 2 (current version) does not. Check our wiki for MathML there is a program that can convert MathML to SVG which ePub does support.
